Chad Henne will be Jacksonville's starting quarterback Sunday against Tennessee. Coach Mike Mularkey made the announcement Monday, one day after Henne threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns in a 43-37 overtime loss at Houston. Blaine Gabbert injured his right forearm early in the game and had trouble gripping the ball. Henne replaced him in the first quarter and completed 16 of 33 passes. He connected with Cecil Shorts III on a 67-yard touchdown and later hooked up with Justin Blackmon for an 81-yard score. He also found tight end Marcedes Lewis for two TDs in the red zone. Mularkey says Gabbert is questionable against the Titans. If Gabbert can't play, the Jaguars will promote John Parker Wilson from the practice squad to serve as Henne's backup.

Week 12 Power Ranks: Jaguars leave the cellar for the first time this year marking Chad Henne’s finest NFL accomplishment

It isn’t often that a move up from last place on our ranks gets you the lead story, but it isn’t often that the loss of a starting quarterback allows for an offensive rebirth, either. For the first time this season we have a new low man on the totem pole; after a week 11 … 

Chad Henne to start for Jaguars against Titans

Chad Henne has been promoted to the role of Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback for the upcoming game against the Tennessee Titals. Henne replaced an injured Blain Gabbert (eblow) and kept Jacksonville in the game against Houston on Sunday. The Jaguars ultimately lost 43-37 in overtime. In the contest, Henne went 16-of-33 passing for 354 yards and four touchdowns. There had...

Mularkey names Henne starting QB

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Chad Henne is the starting quarterback, according to the Florida Times-Union. Henne, who took over for injured starter Blaine Gabbert early Sunday against the Houston Texans, will start the Jaguars' next game against the Tennessee Titans. Gabbert left in the first quarter with a bruised right elbow. He was injured...

Jaguars plan on starting Chad Henne next week

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told the media on Monday that he plans on starting Chad Henne at quarterback over Blaine Gabbert, who’s questionable with an elbow injury. Henne came into yesterday’s game and racked up 354 yards and 4 touchdowns in an overtime loss to the Texans.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script...

Henne could take the Jaguars on a run

With Blaine Gabbert now on IR, ending his season, the focus of the Jaguars and its fans now shifts to Chad Henne. Henne provided the best offensive production we've seen from a Jaguars quarterback since the David Garrard era, and he did it against one of the NFL's best defensive units. It's safe to say that the Texans didn't expect the Jaguars to go vertical on...

Houston Texans Slip By Chad Henne and the Jaguars in OT

The final score was 43-37.  The Jacksonville Jaguars went into Reliant Stadium and held their own.  The Jaguars continued the road show, playing their opponents' hard.  You need proof?  Check out linebackers Paul Posluszny face in the fourth quarter.  With blood clouding his face and four stitches in his forehead, Posluszny and the defense did not lay down for the Texans...

Week 12 Pass Defense: Hanging with Chad

No more bye weeks!  This is great news for everyone whose team isn’t riddled with injuries.  QBs seem to be dropping like flies with concussions and other assortments of injuries, but for some teams (Jacksonville, I’m looking at you), that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Seriously, if you predicted Chad Henne could come into a game against The Texans and throw 4 TDs for 350...

RotoWire NFL No. 2 Quarterbacks

The bye weeks finally ended, but at quarterback, matchups are still key for two-QB leagues. There are no major injuries outside of a few concussed quarterbacks who could return soon, and there are plenty of lower-tier passers performing admirably enough to warrant use. For those players, recent trends are more important than their body of work, so rolling the dice on a hot Chad Henne...

Jacksonville Jaguars: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 32 (+0) Record: 1-9 It’s still neck and neck for them and the Chiefs. I don’t know if it really matters. They both suck. I think it will take one team winning to show any separation between them and I don’t see that happening. Gabbert has been put on IR with elbow and forearm problems, but it really just seems like a convenient way for Mike Mularkey to get Chad Henne...

Jaguars place Blaine Gabbert on injuried reserve

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s season is over. The team placed the second year player on injured reserve following a forearm and shoulder injury that occurred in a game against Houston on Nov. 19. Chad Henne, who took over following the injury, will quarterback the team for the rest of the season. Henne finished the game with 354 yards passing to go with four...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 1-9 I used to think the Chiefs were better than the Jaguars, but I don’t really think there’s any difference between the two now that Brady Quinn is going to be the Chiefs’ starting quarterback; in fact, the Jaguars might even be better if Chad Henne can establish himself as clearly better than Gabbert (he had a great game last week, but he’s known...
